By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 28, 2011
Format: DVD
There's really not a lot of original, un-cliched vampire television and/or movies out there. Your best bet is anime.

One good example of this is "Black Blood Brothers," an all-too-short anime that spins up several kinds of vampires -- good, bad, and creepy ones. Gorgeous art, a likable lead vampire, and a very unique mythology -- and while the first couple episodes are decent but not outstanding, the story starts to really bloom when the bad-guy vampires enter the scene. Too bad it ended WAY prematurely.

Two vampires -- powerful Jiro and his little brother Kotaro -- are stowing away on a Chinese ship on their way to Japan. Their destination: the Safe Zone, where vampires and humans are allowed to coexist. But then a firefight breaks out on board between some immigrant vampires and an anti-vampire military squad, and Jiro has no choice but to get involved.

Afterwards they are helped by a Company worker named Mimiko -- but things get nasty when the military shows up again. And then Jiro learns that his little brother and Mimiko are with the immigrant vampires -- and one of them is a Kowloon Child, the most lethal and contagious form of vampire. And it's headed for the Safe Zone.

Unfortunately this battle isn't the last one Jiro must face. More vampires are attacking them, and some old acquaintances of Jiro's are involved -- including the malignant Cassa, a former companion of his who betrayed him and his long-dead lover. As more Kowloon Children rise in the city, Mimiko starts doing research on something called the "eleventh yard," which is somehow key to the future of the Kowloon Children (and in turn, to everybody else as well).

Jiro, aka "The Silver Blade" is a vampire famous for defeating the Kowloon Children (extremely contagious and insane vampires) during the Holy War. 10 years later, Jiro and his little brother Kotaro make their way to the Special Zone, a city that bars the entrance of Kowloon Children - unless they are invited in. Which the well meaning Mimiko accidentally does. Jiro is once again forced to confront Kowloon Children in order to protect those he holds dear, and face his painful past.

I was surprised at how much I actually liked this show. Reading the description I had no expectations (not really a vampire person), but I was pleasantly surprised when I actually liked the characters and found the story interesting. It does a good job of maintaining a balance of action and mystery, between the current battle against the Kowloon Children and flashbacks slowly reveling Jiro's past. As vampire stories go, this is a pretty good one and Jiro is unexpectedly likable and interesting. I was almost shocked that he wasn't all-powerful when angry - instead he is simply really good. It was quiet refreshing.
The problem I had with this series was the ending. Mostly in that it doesn't really have one. The last episode left me feeling like "Great, we've reached the halfway point - where is the rest?" The pacing of the series feels pretty good, until you reach the end and still have stuff left undone and unexplained. It would have been so much cooler if they had actually fit everything into the 12 episodes they had.

Still, it was worth watching, and most of the important stuff concerning Jiro's past is explained. And for $18 it is a pretty safe gamble.
